    Clearly, I am not Jane. However, in my opinion, you should go to the doctor as soon as possible. Ideally, your gyno. Breast pain isn't terribly uncommon in women due to hormones shortly before their period, or even any time during their cycle. However, what causes concern is the red streaks you spoke about and the fact you have had mastitis in the past. And well, the fact it feels warmer and swollen compared to the other breast.

    I don't have any hormones I take Estrogen because two years ago I had a Total Hysterectomy because of endometriosis and I was only 27 but I get mastitis alot.
